Funded by Public Art Vienna

Boris Sieverts, Büro für Städtereisen, explores the water in Penzing

The River Vienna and the 2nd Viennese high-source water pipeline (bringing drinking water from the mountain Hochschwab/ Styria to Vienna since 1910) run through the entire length of Penzing. Both are perceived as built structures rather than bodies of water: the water pipeline (Hochquellenleitung) in the form of its architecturally spectacular reservoir and the River Vienna as a deep, brick-built shaft. The Büro für Städtereisen invites you to explore the waters of Penzing, which come to light in a dazzling way through the architecture that conceals them.

A cooperation with urbanize! 2023.
